Lovely Equinox to one and All ~

the ink drawing from the previous post
inspired this watercolor
in honor of Spring

on this first day of spring
half way between the shortest day of the year
and the longest day of the year
i woke to fresh snow!
(yes this is home sweet home)

one of my favorite spring
and summer 

Fairy Food

1 serving:
1 cup homemade almond milk
honey or agave to taste
1T + 1t chia seeds
1T. dried fruit - cherries or whatever you like
1T. dry coconut
sprinkle of spice, your choice: cinnamon, ginger, cardamon, vanilla

place in jar with lid and shake
a few minutes later shake well again
place in refrigerator over night
ready to enjoy in the morning

(if you don't shake it well, you will get lumps of gooey chia
seeds. Fairies would never eat that!)

Lovely Spring or Autumn
to one and all!


  1. It is just gorgeous Tammy!!!!

  2. Absolutely Beautiful. What a lovely way to welcome spring.

    Happy Spring to you as well.

    Me, too - I love Almond Milk both the vanilla and the chocolate.

    Just recently got my daughter loving it as well. She puts it on her cereal.

  3. Look. now she has a gloriole!

    OH! Snow! We always think of this special cold winter in your country. Our winter this year was very mild, Forsythia begin to florish now. But nobody can say, what the following winter will bring.

  4. Indeed, Tammy, eternal beauty flows in your blog creations.

    I wish you bright spiritual days.

    There is a dream flower...
    On the green hill...

    Under sky high blue
    and veils of clouds
    so fragile and
    full of raindrops
    filled with tender longing...

  5. Your art has a very special meaning, always I see a great peace in it.

  6. Your Spring is beautiful. We are having a very white spring actually snowed today...yuck! Your home looks wonderful. It looks like a wonderful place to live, especially with your love of nature.

    I think I'll have to give your fairy food a try. Does it come out like a chunky, gelled smoothie?

  7. Fairy food sounds yummy indeed, Tammie! happy Spring,

  8. A fairy thank you!

    Joan, wonderful that you and your daughter like almond milk, perhaps you will enjoy this breakfast food?!

    Yes, snow, but most has melted today. Thank you for your visits. Wishing you lovely Forsythia.

    Troebadoer, thank you for your poetic message and for the song on YouTu. it was lovely!

    Kim, our snow was getting dirty too, but last nights snow cleaned it all up!

    Sus, let me know if you try the fairy meal.

    Cloudia, thank you ~

    lovely spring to you all!

  11. Beautiful way to welcome spring, and i like the sound of your fairy food! Valerie

  12. Beautiful picture!
    Love the watercolor trees :)

  13. Gorgeous serene painting! Thanks for the recipe. :)

  14. Such a contrast! First there is the beautiful painting with the warm colours and the feeling of spring, and then all of a sudden the winter's back! Can't believe there's still so much snow out there .... Hope spring starts soon for you!

  15. TOO SWEET to add any of my words! and I am having much of the same thing for brunch just now..added peaches and ground walnuts...CHEERS!

  16. beautiful drawing. it reminds of spring and then the snow shot, I think I prefer to stare at the drawing a little longer than the snow shot.

    hope you're keeping warm. have a great day.

  17. Tammy,Almond milk, yum. I bet you are a very healthy lady. The way you eat and the fresh air that you breathe each day.. not to mention the exercise you must get wandering your wilderness. It seems a very satisfying lifestyle.

  18. How warm and delightful spring looks in your art. It is great to see what this looks like with paint. I loved the fairy recipe, how fun! Hopefully spring will look like this soon!

  19. Prachtige foto,s een sprookje in de sneeuw.
    De pen tekening is mooi de vrouw is denk ik Tammie in haar prachtige jurk.
    Liefs een groetje Christiene.

    Beautiful pictures,'s a fairy tale in the snow.
    The pen drawing is beautiful the woman is, I think Tammie in her beautiful dress.
    A lovingly greet you Christiene.
